Overview

Capstone's microturbine product can be used in hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) and marine applications. Capstone microturbines are used in hybrid electric vehicle (HEV) applications as a range extender, acting as an onboard battery charger for increased fuel economy, quieter operations, reduced emissions, and higher reliability. Thus, the need for daytime battery charging or battery swapping is eliminated. In marine applications, Capstone microturbines can operate on diesel and liquified natural gas (LNG) and is used to provide onboard auxiliary power for luxury yachts and shore power.
